Comedian Sugar Sammy is under fire when some say his latest show is “mainly meant to make fun of Quebecers”.
Sammy, 47, thus finds himself accused of “Quebec bashing”, while “ridiculing Quebecers”, their “style of speech”, and their “lack of culture, in some cases”, explains Paul Larocque on “La Jute” “.
Some even think that it should be silenced, in other words, “cancelled”.
Even if dueling Elsie Lefebvre thinks Sammy is going too far, she doesn’t want to silence him: “I don’t think he should be silenced, because everyone has the right to express themselves,” nuance-teh.
However, the man is tired of the comic’s main target being “Francophone Quebecers”.
“French Canadians, we are crazier than the others, we are more than this, we are more than that, we are more racist, we are more everything…”, she adds.
“I wonder who is acting as racist towards ‘indigenous’ Quebecers. I find it appalling that he can make his accusations,” she adds.

Marc-André Leclerc doesn’t understand his fellow committee member’s position.
“People have a choice to go there, or not to go there. But those who do go there after that cry, do one thing else well, stay home, do some gardening,” he suggests.
According to Emmanuelle Latravers, “we have sensitive skin.”
“We have the right to be laughed at, but only if we are who we look like,” she jokes.
Mrs. Lefebvre points out in her response that the problem lies elsewhere, since humor does not allow you to say everything.
“Let’s laugh at ourselves, that’s fine. The problem is, he calls us racist, shut-in, xenophobic, this and then… He will, we’re such a welcoming people, it’s proof of it: He grew up here, this guy – there,” she says.
“When Canada calls us names, then at some point…it is their national sport to coax us into, Well, that will do,” the laughter repeats.
Tom Mulcair, who develops a lot in Canadian English, does not acknowledge the reality painted by Mrs. Lefebvre.
“With all due respect to my friend and colleague Elsie, I don’t hear what you say there every day, that Quebecers are treated this way and that,” he explains.
